Pro-active Real Estate Marketing

There's more to selling a home than placing a sign on the lawn, an ad in the paper or internet and waiting for buyers to come.

Unfortunately most agents do just that.
Tom prospects everyday five days per week and does not stop until he finds you a buyer.

Pro-active Marketing

Our work begins the moment you sign the listing agreement and does not end until way beyond the close. Many times we have a buyer prior to the sign installation.

Worldwide Exposure

RE/MAX: the most widely recognized real estate brand in the world. For more than 45 years, RE/MAX has been the leading real estate organization in Canada.

Tom is Tech Savvy

FAQ's for home-sellers

When's the best time to sell my home?

The best time to list your home is whenever you are ready!

But from a market perspective, Vancouver home prices are at historical highs with inventory still extremely low.

The median percent of original list price is at 102% for Vancouver West and 107% for Vancouver east. This means that sellers are getting 100% (or more!) of the original list price of their home. It has been this way since December 2019, and the market has not seen a median of 100% in over 6 years.

The market does also ebb and flow with the changing of the seasons here in the lower mainland, but there are pros and cons to each season.

Many sellers do tend to list in the Spring or Summer because there are more buyers out shopping and you can typically end up getting a little more for your home.

How long will it take to sell my home?

Housing inventory in 2020-2021 has been extremely low and can’t keep up with demand, which means that homes are selling quite quickly. The average days on market for Vancouver West in April 2021 was 25 days and Vancouver East was 17 days.

So with a strong strategy and professional marketing we can get most homes under contract within a week. In the Spring and Summer months it’s not uncommon for homes to be sold over the weekend!

How do I prep my home for the market?

A good first step is to clean, start decluttering, and moving out odds and ends.

After we have our in-depth listing meeting you will have a tangible list of tasks to complete before we hit the market. Depending on your home’s condition it may just be cleaning and decluttering, other times it can be painting and replacing floors.

To note: not every home improvement project will add value back into your home. Always chat with your Realtor prior to tackling a big project!

What additional costs will there be?

Additional fees when listing a home are harder to put into a definite list because a lot of things that can come up are home maintenance items. But, you can prep for a few expenses.

The largest expense besides any home maintenance projects will typically be a Realtor’s commission fee. In most transactions, the seller pays the full commission out to both the listing agent and the buyer’s agent. You’ll also have miscellaneous closing and recording fees of a thousand plus dollars.
